Crank Bros pedals- the spindles break
They are initially great to use- very good in muddy conditions as there is lots of internal clearance for mud. I love the amount of float too. However, after 2 pairs of eggbeaters and 2 pairs of candies have snapped spindles, I've had enough. I can really do without the injuries they cause, and the associated time off the bike, not to mention the long walk/roll/1-leg-pedal back home when they break. I've heard first hand reports of others snapping plenty of spindles on these pedals as well. I gave up on the EBs while ago after a couple of snappage incidents, and swapped to Candies, but 2 spindle breakages in the past 7 months leads me to conclude that CB pedals have a serious design fault- weak/faulty/undersized spindles. They have all broken in the same place (see photo), so it is clearly a weakness in the design of these pedals. On Sunday the snapped left spindle gave my left thigh a very nasty greasy gouging (see photo) with plenty of blood and a big bruise on the back of my right thigh from the top tube or saddle when I went down. Last September I somehow managed to stay on the bike when a right spindle snapped whilst sprinting up a slope (different set of pedals), but had extensive bruising on the back of my left thigh and some strained arm muscles.
In every case the spindles have snapped when I was out of the saddle riding hard up a slope. I don't do big air- in fact I rarely get the wheels off the ground at all other than for the occasional log or rock, and weigh 78-80kg. I ride 150-200km/week on my Litespeed and Maverick, mainly on quiet remote dirt roads in fairly hilly terrain, and farm tracks with a bit of ST made by the cows. One pair snapped after less than 2500km, and the others at just under 8000km.
Would I recommend them? Only to someone who rode gently around on smooth roads, never pedalled out of the saddle and weighed under 50kg. I don't know anyone like that...

PROS: Easy to clip in and out

CONS: The spindles snap

Great product
I was not sold on clipless pedals until I used these. I did not expect the transition to be so easy. I have only used flats for the past 10 years. I finally gave in and bought these. I installed them two weeks ago and love them.

PROS: Easy To Install, Easy to use, Nice design

CONS: none

Candy 1 Pedals
My first non-SPD pedal and I couldn't be happier. Very simplistic and lightweight. Secure, reliable entry, comfortable amount of float, no unplanned releases. Cleats seem to be wearing well. Have not used in mud yet...

PROS: Dual Sided Entry, Lightweight, Increases Pedaling Efficiency, Reliable Entry/Exit, Good Platform

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking

Best for what it's intended for
I have been using CrankBrothers for 5 years now and never had problems with it and I don't even maintain it. Contrary to what one of the reviewers here said about them breaking off, the Candy 1 will work best for road or light trail riding. Anything else than that and you should use the CB Mallet which I use for serious technical trail and downhill riding at the North Shore and Whistler bike park.

PROS: Almost maintenance free, Easy to clip in and out

BEST USES: Road, Light Trail Riding

Good pedals
These work well. However are mostly comprised of plastic so longevity may be an issue. The pedal works well, has a platform and easy entry and exit, great for beginners.

PROS: Decent Platform, Reliable Entryexit, price, Not cumbersome

CONS: scratches EASILY

Great pedal at a Great price!
I replaced my SPD pedals with these, and have been very happy so far. Extremely light for the price, and the added platform over the Eggbeaters is welcome. I just wish the entire platform was used like the older Candy's. The new shape on these only contact your shoe on the center "square" area, and not the ends of the platform.

PROS: Easy To Clip And Unclip, Small Platform, Lightweight, Durable

CONS: Small Amount Of Play
